Haiti’s Sunrise Airways is planning to expand its service network to Kingston, Jamaica and Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, the company announced.
Sunrise currently operates 19-seat Jetstream 32 EP aircraft on domestic routes within Haiti.
“While the Eastern Caribbean has long been well-served by hub operations in San Juan, we here in the West have generally been forced to endure lengthy connections outside the region,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways, in a statement.
The startup company was established in 2009 before launching its scheduled flights in Haiti last year.
“Sunrise Airways aims to change the old paradigm, creating enhanced, more efficient air service options for business and leisure travelers in our corner of the region, while also boosting business development and tourism prospects here in Haiti,” Bayard said.
